Been to the lookout a few times, the food is excellent and the staff are always friendly and attentive. The view looking out onto the sea makes an ideal backdrop for a spot of lunch.

Good cafe in really good location, slightly expensive but I do not mind paying a little extra for good food. Came here in July and September and will be back again next year

I don't know, you will have to ask the restaurant direct, or they may show their menu on-line.
